Read all these comments and like Trevor Harris comment the most. Put him in charge of Ofcom who I seem to be looking out for somebody else rather than the consumer. Clearly HDTV would free up bandwidth. But before Ofcom start messing around anymore, they should bear in mind that digital roll out took too long and is in disarray.
From Trevors comments, it seems obvious that digital should have been rolled out in the HD format from the outset. People have all these HD ready TVs and cant receive HD content without spending £55 on an ugly box + additional cabling. And a lot of people still dont know that HD content is available via Freeview.
There should be a government mandate that Freesat HD and Freeview HD should built into all TVs sold in the UK. Surely these components cost less than a £1, yet when I purchased my initial TV, it cost me an additional £100. People are fed up with the lack of foresight, lack of management in these roll outs and the constant expenditure.
